7 Design Hotels for Outdoor Adventures

Vigilius Mountain Resort

Reconnecting with nature can make everything better. From exhilarating adventures and winter sports to peaceful respites and summer vitality. Surround yourself with natural wonders, turn off your phone, close your laptop, and take a walk on the wild side.

A journey up the Austrian mountains to Bergland Hotel Sölden presents one of Europe’s best ski and snowboard resorts, with over 148 kilometers of slopes and 34 ski lifts.

For an island escape in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Furnas Boutique Hotel, Thermal & Spa in the Portuguese Azores should be top of the list. Set in the heart of the island, the interiors allude to its jungle setting, with artwork and design pieces showcasing the hotel’s remote location.

Sitting atop the village of Silvaplana in St. Mortiz, Nira Alpina is the gateway to some of Switzerland’s highest mountains, where one of the joys for guests is being able to ski right up to the entrance.

At Huus Gstaad, “back to nature” takes on a new meaning. Guests can take advantage of the hotel’s all-inclusive activities program to really experience everything the Swiss region has to offer.

Taking the mountain escape to the next level, Vigilius Mountain Resort (pictured) in South Tyrol, Italy, is set 1,500 meters above sea level and is only accessible by cable car no roads, no traffic, no noise.

For a city break, Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm offers a modern oasis in the heart of the bustling Swedish capital. To truly escape from it all, Cambodia is calling. Set at the gateway to Angkor’s World Heritage Sites, the village-like clusters of the Phum Baitang resort ensure total cultural immersion in Cambodia’s mystical Siem Reap.
